Mikel Artea is eagerly scouring the transfer market to bring Arsenal a rookie in the central position. This is logical when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been left out of the team’s plans and Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah will expire this summer.
Technical director Edu tried to negotiate with Fiorentina about Dusan Vlahovic but in the end, the Serbian striker agreed to join Juventus in a deal worth 75 million euros (£63 million), according to the disclosure. from Goal.com.
During a live session on The Arsenal Way, experts Tom Canton and Josh Williams talked to each other about the Gunners’ attack and questioned Bayer Leverkusen striker Patrik Schick.
Expert Williams is surprised that up to this point, Schick has not received much attention from the big European teams. “I’m pretty surprised he hasn’t been contacted because he’s having a really good season,” Williams said.
“So far, only Robert Lewandowski in Europe’s top five leagues has scored more than 17 goals this season, excluding penalties. He’s still only 26 years old but he’s He played with several clubs; he was at RB Leipzig, AS Roma.”
Williams is concerned that with £50m, teams like Newcastle can convince Leverkusen to sell their mainstay.
“I see Newcastle trying to get him and the reason they’re not buying him is obviously because (his price tag) is getting closer to £50m,” Williams said.
“But, if you look at Arsenal’s willingness to pay Vlahovic then I don’t think £50m would be bad in this case and the fact that £50m is being valued suggests that (his contract) could be commercialized. quantifiable.”
Williams concluded by noting that Leverkusen had just signed a new striker, which left Schick’s future with the German side uncertain.
” Leverkusen has just signed a player named Sardar Azmoun from Zenit – maybe this is a long-term replacement,” he said.
“I’d love to see Schick in the Premier League, he’s had a really good Euro and if you take out his time at Roma he looks like a player with a really high ceiling – this season only To have Lewandowski is to score more goals than him.”
It is really impossible to underestimate a striker who is pocketing 18 goals in just 17 games this season. The average scoring performance of 1 goal per game is strong evidence and enough to convince Arteta and his colleagues to spend money on Schick. At the age of 26, the Czech striker is at the maturity of his career. And if the negotiations are successful, Arteta will own a Lewandowski of his own.
